Foam Ingot Recycling
Below are some pictures of condensed EPS foam called "ingots" which come in various sizes and shapes depending upon the type of foam densifier in use. RecycleMyFoam purchases trailer load quantities of ingots from anywhere in the USA. We now offer low volume generators a program to collect and ship their ingots directly to end user manufactures via FedEx ground using our new Bulk Container collection system
(read about it below).
Bulk Container Collection System
RecycleMyFoam offers a unique way for small generators of EPS foam ingots to recycle and re-purpose their materiel. Our Bulk Container collection system enables you to ship one full container or more at a time via FedEx ground (averaging 1000-1500 lbs) and having empty container(s) shipped back to you so the process can continue. Below are the specs on the Bulk Container we are using. Contact us for more details.

Some good and some not so good
Purchasing a foam densifier is a big investment with pricing ranging from $19K to $65K and higher. There are different manufactures and they are manufactured in different parts of the world. Understanding which models works best and which has the best warranties, track records and service plans is just another reason why you would want to contact us and take advantage of our FREE foam consulting services.
Track, visit and get samples
Now that you have successfully recycled your EPS foam by reducing your foam packaging waste 90-1 through the use of a foam densifier, let's not drop the ball there. We need to track where the foam ingots are going and what products are being made from this material ( picture above is of interior molding made from 100% EPS ingots). This full disclosure and closed loop recycling program would have to also include a site visit to the manufactures facility and samples of the recycled product for others to see. Together we need to tell the whole story on how you reduced your carbon footprint and helped reduce landfill space and that's where RecycleMyFoam comes in. So give us a call and let's have that conversation today.
